J.S. Tchalenko Imperial College, London
Macroseismic data based on field work and bibliographical research is given for six little-known destructive earthquakes which occurred in the Central Alborz, Iran, during the 20th Century. They are: Ah-Mobarakabad 1930, Alborz 1935, Garmsar 1945, Musha 1955, Sangechal 1957 and Babol-Kenar 1971. The locations of the two largest of these earthquakes (1935 and 1957) were fortunately at some distance from the densely populated regions of Tehran and the coastal towns of the Caspian Sea.
